Pagosa Weather is now the “CoCoRaHS Coordinator” for Archuleta County and is also a “Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador”.

We welcomed Hillary Fredrickson, Suanne Mclellan, Frank Snyder, and Jerry Kmack as new CoCoRaHS weather observers in the last month!!! Huge thanks to these folks who will be adding their data every day to the database and help hydrologists as they make key decisions during the drought. Thank you so much, Hillary, Suanne, Frank, and Jerry for your efforts to help us out!

Special thanks to Dana, a CoCoRaHS observer who reached out to us with questions regarding her reports. We’re now getting some very valuable data from a data sparse area. Thank you, Dana!

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
